#poetry #amwriting Each day I grow, a poem for Donna Jacobs by Tracy Diane Miller
I am no longer burdened by my past
For I have made mistakes
Yet each day I grow
God has given me a purpose
And Faith tells me so
The woman who was once lost
The woman who struggled to survive
God has given me a purpose
And because of Him
I continue to thrive
Armed with compassion
There is strength of conviction in my voice
Each day I see myself grow
Renewed by a healthier choice
I listen to the stories
Of others who have lost their way
God has given me a purpose
Of this I will convey
That badge of shame
I once wore
A mask that covered me
God has given me a purpose
A new life that has come to be
